Job Description

We are looking for two committed individuals who can contribute to the work of the University of Bath’s Audit and Risk Assurance Committee.  This is an excellent opportunity to participate in monitoring the risk management, control, corporate governance, financial and other operations of the University.  The Committee oversees the work of both the internal and external auditors.  It meets five times a year, jointly with the External Auditor.

You will provide an independent, external overview of the processes in place and offer a supportive but challenging approach to the work of the Committee.


The Audit and Risk Assurance Committee reports to the University Council and is responsible for upholding formal and transparent arrangements for governance and financial reporting, robust internal control maximising value for money, a sound policy on fraud and irregularity, effective risk management and quality assurance of data as well as maintaining an open but professional line of communication and relationship with the Auditors.


There are two vacancies for appointed members of the Committee to take effect from January 2019.
